Hoyo de Monterrey cigars were one of the first Cuban heritage brands to be hand rolled outside of Cuba after the trade embargo of 1962 made Cuban cigars illegal to sell in the United States. Beginning with tobacco seeds smuggled out of Cuba in a diplomatic pouch, Hoyo has gone on to become one of the most highly regarded brands in Honduras. Today, the original Hoyo de Monterrey cigars are still Handcrafted in Cofradia, Honduras using a timeless blend of aged Honduran and Dominican long fillers covered by your choice of an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper in an EMS shade, or a darker, oilier, Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro leaf. Over the last few decades, the brand portfolio has grown into a more diverse selection of premium cigars to appeal to a wider audience. This includes the Dark Sumatra, a bold, full bodied, earthy and spicy taste sensation, and the La Amistad series that features the Black, Gold, and Silver Lines, that put a fresh new spin on the classic Hoyo flavors. The lineup also includes the Epicure Selección cigars, that pays homage to the country of Honduras where the brand has been made for more than five decades, and the Tradición cigars, created to honor the storied history of this 155-year-old brand. Order your favorites today and savor a smoke that sets the bar high for all other Honduran cigars on the market.
